CSIRO – Teff Grain

THE BRIEF

Food Innovation Australia Limited (FIAL) is an industry led, government funded initiative to collaboratively fuel growth throughout the food and agribusiness industry. Working with CSIRO on a number of co-sponsored projects, Square Fish was retained to produce success story case study videos.

Teff grain is an ancient grain from Ethiopia which is high in calcium and resistant starch and is grown en masse by Fraser McNaul in Wakool NSW.

THE SOLUTION

Square Fish worked on the brief with FIAL and CSIRO and helped storyboard a case study highlighting both organisations and their partnerships with the McNaul family in Wakool. Under the brand, Outback Harvest, the McNaul’s have worked on a Teff product range that is sold from paddock to plate. The range includes pancake mixes, muffin mixes, pasta and flour.

We travelled to Wakool and spent the day telling Fraser’s story and then followed up with shoots at the CSIRO Food and Innovation Centre in Weribee and at FIAL.

THEY SAID WHAT?

Hamish is not only a fine producer of entertaining commercial videos, but is also a highly professional video storyteller. I have dealt with him for years and he excelled himself twelve months ago in producing a video for waverleystation.com. It communicated far better for Waverley than anything preceding it and attracted over 25,000 viewers on social media.

Hamish at Square Fish took on my project and invested his energy into making sure it met all my requirements. His ability to visualise and encapsulate the story and then put this into a video is a true art. The quality of the images captured in the short time frame was amazing and I would highly recommend Hamish to anyone looking to use his services.

Hamish and Square Fish are hands down the best video production company I’ve ever worked with. Fast turnaround, competitive quoting, and a super pleasure to deal with. But most of all, Hamish gets it right every time. Once the briefing is done – whether it’s a series of interviews, a corporate promotional video or a launch event highlights reel – the result is delivered fast and with just the right grabs and content selected. There is rarely any need to go back for a second edit. If I had to guess the Square Fish motto, I would say it’s “get it right first time”.

Square Fish have delivered some incredible work for our live music projects. Hamish and the Square Fish team were always accommodating and agile, which was essential to make our tight deadlines work. Despite some difficult timelines and moving targets, the content was always delivered on time, at consistently a high standard and met the brief. We wouldn’t hesitate to use Square Fish again in the future.
